I don't do &quot;reviews&quot;. I just don't. But after staying at Steve and Linda's oceanfront condo I couldn't not. I just had to. My wife and I celebrated our 36th anniversary on Curaçao. What made it perfect for us was finding Steve and Linda's resort on the western end of the island. Condo 7A is clean, comfortable, and convenient to all things scenic and adventuresome. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, and great beaches are all within minutes of 7A. Some literally within a 60 second walk. Others within a 5-7 minute drive. You can venture farther, which we did and will on our return trips, but there is little need to. Pick up your groceries on your drive from the airport to the resort and plan to relax on their terrace or lower patio between adventures. Everything about your place was perfect. Thank you Steve and Linda. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway Response
This was our second trip to Marazul, and an even better experience this time staying in Apartment 8A! We love the location, off the beaten track and away from the big city. Quiet, a great place to relax and dive. Steve and Linda have done a wonderful job, everything you need is there. If you are lucky enough to be there when they are, you will discover they are very gracious hosts and will make sure you have everything you need. They will send you packets of info with everything you need to know about the island, car rentals, where the best grocery stores are, etc. We've found their info is spot on, no problems. The car rental service was great, it was so nice to have the cell phone when we needed to check in at home. We would advise getting the GPS if it is your first time on the island. The Manager, Renee, was also very nice, checked in with us almost every day to see how our stay was. The condo is beautiful, very comfortable, can't beat the view of a sunset every night off your patio. With a nice tropical breeze, we didn't even need the AC, just the fans were enough to keep us comfortable. Wifi worked great. There was a nice big screen TV with Direct TV, but you'd have to ask my husband how it was, I was too busy watching the view! The grill was an added bonus, so nice to be able to cook out while enjoying the sunset. The diving is great, you can gear up right at the condo and walk to the steps, the ocean is right there. Amazing coral, huge schools of fish, turtles, many eels. Never a bad dive. Saw something new each dive. We enjoyed finishing our dives near the ladder, so much to see on the way out! Dunk tank right by the pool to soak your gear when you are done, as well as shower. Pool is gorgeous, very clean, lots of lounge chairs, shade if you prefer. Oceans West for diving is just a 5 minute drive for tanks/weights and also a beautiful reef to dive, and a restaurant for a cold drink or meal after. Marazul is minutes from many white sand beaches with good snorkeling and diving. Fun places to eat with great food. We went mostly for the diving, but did spend some time at Shete Boka National Park. Beautiful view of the other side of the island and the big waves crashing into the cliffs. We had a great time, and look forward to returning, hopefully very soon! Thanks Steve and Linda for making this a wonderful trip! Recommended for: Sightseeing, Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway Response
We got lucky when we rented this townhouse at Marazul. The location within the resort couldn't be better and the owners have done everything possible to make this unit welcoming and comfortable for renters. Thanks!
This was our second vacation at Marazul, our first stay in 7A. Steve and Linda were terrific with sending all the information we needed before we came. It just so happened that they were there the same time we were. It was awesome to meet them both and be the recipients of their hospitality. Their knowledge of the island and species of fish we saw while snorkeling were extremely helpful. We had fun sharing stories of our daily adventures. This trip we saw more species of fish then our previous trip. The snorkeling was absolutely awesome. At Playa Forti we swam with 2 turtles. We returned there a number of times in our 2 week stay and each time the turtles were there and we even got to touch them! Another great snorkeling location was Playa Kalki where we saw numerous eel and got great pictures and videos of octopus. Lots of pictures were taken and when we were going thru them upon returning home, we realized one fish we had a picture of was a baracuda! This trip we also saw squid which we never have seen before. Each beach you go to offers something different and no two days are the same. We are in awe of what lies beneath the surface of the ocean. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed the evenings with a glass of wine sitting and waiting for the green flash as the sun sank. Yes, there is a green flash! We had everything we needed in 7A. It was our home away from home. We love Marazul for the quietness, and the feeling it gives of home. When you return from your adventures at the end of the day, it's nice to sit in the quietness on your deck and just relax. We have seen other resorts on the island, and nothing compares to Marazul. There is lots to do on the island. You have a choice of how busy you want to be. We highly recommend D&D for renting your car. Daniel is awesome. We are planning on returning again to Marazul. We again will plan to stay in 7A. Thank you Steve and Linda!!
